UPTON, NY — Lyric soprano Sarah Wolfson, the first prize winner at the 2007 Concert Artists Guild (CAG) International Competition, will sing at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory on Wednesday, December 19, 2012, at noon in Berkner Hall. Sponsored by Brookhaven Science Associates, the company that manages the Lab, the concert is free and open to the public. All visitors to the Laboratory 16 and older must bring a photo I.D.

Wolfson's singing is said to possess a remarkable ability to communicate with audiences on recital, orchestral, cabaret, and operatic stages. Her infectious energy and innate musicality have earned praise from The Washington Post for “working magic.” Recent performance highlights include an all-Kurt Weill program in New York’s Neue Galerie and four performances celebrating music of American composers at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre. Reviewing one of these engagements, The New York Times declared, “Ms. Wolfson sang with luminous sound and impressively focused high notes.”

Wolfson made recital debuts at Carnegie Hall (on the CAG winners series) and at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall (as winner of The Juilliard School’s Vocal Arts Recital Debut). She earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees as a student of Cynthia Hoffman at The Juilliard School.

She is on the faculty of Columbia University, where she teaches vocal performance, and is a member of Sing for Hope, a nonprofit organization founded by opera singers that links artists and charities.
